Background on bridge inspection regulations
Bridge inspections are governed by both federal and individual state guidelines, which can vary significantly by state. U.S. federal bridge inspection regulations are covered by the National Bridge Inventory Standards (NBIS).
They establish rules on:
- The types of bridges that are required to be inspected.
- How often they should be inspected.
- The qualifications needed to be a bridge inspector.
State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) implement the NBIS guidelines and generally expand on them.
If you’re in charge of implementing bridge inspections, Bridge Masters can be a valuable resource. As experts in bridge access, we can offer advice as well as the right bridge inspection truck to get your job done.
